notes on government, sports and popular culture
.....We took the train to Charlotte yesterday. The Depot is very nice, and bureaucratic hassles behind boarding the train ( securing a parking permit, having I.D. ready, checking baggage) were minimal. It was very relaxing, and you definitely see a side of the Piedmont that you don't get from the highway.
I was also pleasantly surprised by the time factor. It was about an hour and forty-five minutes from the time we boarded the train in Greensboro until we arrived at the station in Charlotte.
